Yesterday morning from 11:30 to 12:30 p.m., the Maucker Union set up a miniature stage for up and coming performing artist Rachel Bearinger. Bearinger is currently a senior music education major at UNI. Student Organizations Coordinator Connie Hansen did the booking for this event.

Her performance consisted of several opening covers, and then contained some songs from her EP. Assistant professor at the UNI School of Music, Alison Altstatt, was in the Union to support her former student.

“It’s really wonderful to hear her own compositions because I know Rachel from the classroom as an excellent student with a really strong and unique voice and so it’s wonderful to hear her creative work,” Altstatt said.

Students were able to listen while going about their daily activities. Jacob Walker, junior history education major, said the concert was nice and Bearinger had a really good voice.

“There are some of our students that play popular music like this but this is a really amazing achievement to have made an EP of her own songs,” Altstatt said.
